Different roles within TMS give access to specific actions
There are different roles within TMS, that give users access to specific actions. You can assign multiple roles to a user, however, in line with University’s policy on data protection, it is important to ensure access to TMS is only granted to those who need it.
Manages and assigns the following user roles for their Org Unit in TMS:
Organising Tutor with approval permission (colleges)
Tutor with permission to assign Teaching Assistants
Here is a list of University Information Custodians(requires SSO login). If you think this list contains the wrong person for your Organisational Unit, please contact Student Sytems. Likewise, if you are the Information Custodian (IC) for your Org Unit and you also need additional roles in TMS, please contact Student Systems who can assign these for you. As an IC, you cannot assign roles for yourself but you can view your own access to TMS via Manage User Roles.
This is an administrative role for college and departmental staff. Access to college and departmental administration roles is granted by the relevant Information Custodian. Here is the list of University Information Custodians(requires SSO login).
Departments will need to set up their tutors and org units in TMS if they need to receive payment for college teaching (irrespective of whether that teaching is organised by the department or by the college). In addition, departments can optionally use TMS to organise their own teaching.
